    I am still piling up parts for my chassis and plan on building soon. I'm gonna use boxed steel with an original drop axle and a Posies reversed eye spring with a suicide perch. What steering box is better to use, An F100 or an F1?

    I vote for the F1. I have one on my coupe and its great. If you have to rebuild one, you can us parts from car gear boxes 37-48. Same guts, different body.

    I say what ever box fits the bill. If starting from scratch consider a rack & pinion-If it's traditional build they what ever works the best. ST515 says a 51 and I say that's good choice due to parts availability.
